What is Aromatherapy massage?
Aromatherapy is a gentle massage using a blend of essential oils chosen for you. Aromatherapy takes into account how you are feeling emotionally (happy, tearful, stuck), how your body is feeling (tired, strung out, full of aches) and how your mind is, (unable to switch off, fuzzy, scattered). So we can tailor the treatment to suit you. I will choose and blend essential oils to suit how you are feeling. These have the capacity to calm and uplift, to relieve aches and pains and in tired muscles. The oils are absorbed through the skin during the massage and continue to have a therapeutic effect for many hours afterwards. A massage provides an opportunity to take time out from you busy life, a chance to switch off and to experience the pleasure of being pampered.

A full body aromatherapy massage offers many benefits from simple relaxation to the relief of countless stress related conditions we can experience in our busy lives.
